About Alice Cicolini

Alice Cicolini is a designer and creative commissioner, curator of several international touring exhibitions on design and a published author, including The New English Dandy, for Thames & Hudson. She is a Research Associate at Central St Martins, where she graduated in 2009 with a Masters in Jewellery Design.

“Jewellery feels like the perfect environment for me,” says Alice, “situated somewhere between fashion, art and craftsmanship; a place where my knowledge and experience contribute to what I do. This fluidity, or refusal of the possibility of fixed definition, also makes jewellery an interesting place for someone who likes to tell stories. And I love colour, which jewellery indulges in abundance.”
